Us women, we all do it the same way. We decide one day that we need a change. A diet is a great way to make a change, but no immediate results. We need to look different, like, right now! Ah yes, we can change our hair! The next day the appointment is made.
I had one of those moment this week. I googled a picture (basically decided what Jennifer Aniston look I wanted this time - I went for the Horrible Bosses Jen) and booked my appointment at Solace Spa. Timing could not have been better, Solace Spa recently switched to a color line called Goldwell. This line touts their gray coverage, vibrant color and shine, and all of this is accomplished with less damage to your beautiful tresses.
I sat down in the chair and met Hannah, my stylist. After explaining the Jennifer Aniston look I was going for and showing her the picture screenshot on my phone, we agreed that it was doable. Then Hannah asked me a question that I hadn't been asked before, "What colors do you see in the picture? I see a rich brown with some hints of red and lighter pieces around the face. Is that what you see too?" What a great way to make sure you and your client are on the same page, I was impressed. I was even more impressed when she formulated three different colors to apply to my hair.
She started at the roots applying a color to cover my natural hair, this formula need to work a little harder since the hair had not ever been treated (not dyed - don't say that word around these girls!). Then she painted on the more red color in a demi-permanent formula and assured me that it would not fade, but was not as harsh as a permanent color and it would save my ends from furthur damage. Lastly she used a lighter shade on some face framing pieces. Did you know that you can go lighter and not necessarily use bleach? I didn't. Goldwell can do this.
Time to process! After only 20 minutes, it was time to rinse. Hannah used a special shampoo and conditioner that left my hair feeling and smelling fabulous. After an updating haircut and blow out, I was channeling my inner Jennifer to the fullest. The color was spot on and gorgeous. The best part, the next day in the shower the water ran clear and my hair looks just as rich as it did in the salon chair.
So my advice to you ladies...next time you are in the mood for a change, invest in a color experience at Solace Spa. You and your hair will be much happier with the results. Plus, Goldwell will make your hair smell way better than the icky boxed stuff from the grocery store with no clean up.
